Tango Suite World Premiere

A week from Saturday my “Tango Suite” for string orchestra will be getting its world premiere as part of the Englewood Arts Concert Series.  It’s part of the grand finale for the Chamber Music of the Masters season and I’ll be sharing the bill with Mozart, Gershwin and Bartok.  I hope I can measure up!  Sadly, I’m unable to attend myself but I’m having the concert recorded (both audio and video) so I’ll have something to share with you soon.  Or, better yet, if you’re anywhere near Englewood go check it out for yourself!
